With the original slim grips, it was extremely low profile. You can definitely tell in the comparison photos and you can feel it when you grip the gun. No need for a thumb relief at the mag release with that setup. Sorry, I never actually measured their thicknesses.
With the new carbon fiber grips, I don't think it's actually thinner than factory. Maybe a few thousandths. It just feels lower profile because it's not as aggressive in texture.
The TRP is definitely sharp enough in the front strap to make up for the less aggressive grips now, hah. For me, it feels just right now.
I have VZ aliens on my other TRP and those are more aggressive but feel great as well.
